April 11, 2022

A 4-days geospatial analytics training course was held at the Ellen DeGeneres Campus in Kinigi, Musanze district, Rwanda from 15th-18th March. The training was designed in close collaboration with Beth Kaplin from the Center of Excellence in Biodiversity and Natural Resource Management at University of Rwanda and two members from GIS and Geodata4Africa. Steven Hill and Insa Otte were two of the main trainers. The course targeted 20 highly motivated practitioners in conservation-related fields with basic knowledge in geospatial analysis and had a strong focus on capacity building by integrating a training for future trainers. The successful training at the impressively equipped and beautiful located campus comprised the full process of designing and implementing satellite-based monitoring approaches in the context of global change. This also included a full excursion day of field work within the Virunga Massif, which is home to the endangered mountain gorillas.
